This hostel has so much character and charm, not to mention an amazing free breakfast (for backpackers). The beds are awful (I'm talking my knees were poking through the wooded boards and the person underneath was nervous). But seriously other than that it's a phenomenal hostel with great vibes. They have the cutest little chihuahua and I definitely felt at... More

My friend and I stayed 5 nights at this hostel and it was amazing. Right from the start we felt so welcome and the hostel is so homely. The rooms are clean and nice, the breakfast is good and varied, it is close to the city of la fortuna but still not right in the middle of all the noise... More

You're pretty much in the center if you stay at La Choza. It's located on a smaller street parallel to the main street. My friend and I stayed in a 6-person dorm with private bathroom. It's pretty comfortable. The bathroom was spacious, but had a damp feeling and hard for anything to dry. La Choza's staff (the main guy -... More

This hostel offers a big breakfast, it is clean and there are many people around. However it is still not to loud. The receptionist was very helpful and looks up information for you. The hostel is located directly in the town. Only the internet is a little bit slow. In total I can recommend the hostel.

It is a good hostel that is about 3 blocks away from the town center. This makes it very quiet but still accessible by foot. The rooms were nothing special but were clean. There was no AC and the windows allowed bugs to get in. However, for a cheap hostel we cannot complain that much. We were not able to... More

The place is grand and so is the price too. Big car park, nice rooms and the entire place looks new. However, when we got there, the receptionist said we have to go to some other place (which was 2 blocks into a not very nice area of Fortuna). We figured they forgot our booking. Since my wife and I... More

It's a really nice hostel, quiet and clean. For breakfast you have a buffet, it's included. Staff is really friendly and gives you every information. It's near the center. They sell tours as well but i recommend to go to an other agency. We were 2 people doing the national parc arenal and we were just us two and then... More

My husband and I have been backpacking three months and we enjoyed this inn. Positives : Helpful staff, free coffee and breakfast , dorm room with AC. Hot showers, good priced dorm rooms. Only negative was that the dorm room was a bit tight .. 3 bunks in a regular sized room .

Stayed here for one night in Nov 2014 and was very impressed. The female dorm had 6 bed and a large, clean, private bath with hot water. The bed was comfortable, clean and only $10 (Breakfast included!) Wifi didn't work in the rooms, but it was strong in the common areas. Staff was friendly. The hotel itself is a short... More
